the tinsel with which his own hands have crowned himself, is, in
very truth, a halo of divineradianccl
However, it is not with Gandhi the man that we are here con-
cerned, but Gandhi the dictator, and the Fascist organization
which he has created, called Congress, which obeys the slightest
crack of his whip.
One of the strangest paradoxes of modern history is that Congress

more repeating itself*   Just as many people refused to take Mem
Kampf&t its face value, blinding themselves to the fact that it was
